@setthemfree I'm not there yet to join the emacs sect :) I just want a regular desktop environment at the moment

Elementary OS stopped responding to keyboard or mouse. I'd really like to love linux, but I just can't

I love my friends and I love #trip-hop, so when my friends release a trip-hop album, I share it.

It's luminously dark

@MiseryPath maybe you can program the drums with no intention of sounding like a real drums? This might add some industrial spice to your music. But I'm not sure if that's appropriate in your case

@setthemfree I'm pretty new to using linux on a desktop, so I don't have enough of context to appreciate it :) I guess I just need to dive a little deeper and figure out how to configure it myself (same as with everything else on linux)

@flame I've been using it for about a year now, and beside some minor things that I'm too lazy to figure out how to fix (like webcam and bluetooth not working) it works perfectly

@setthemfree probably. I'm getting lost in all these noodles of drivers and services like alsa, pulseaudio and jack. it's much easier to say "linux bad" :)

@flame I have mackbook pro that I use for my work and a laptop with linux/hackintosh that I use for personal stuff. weirdly enough my impression is that hackintosh is much more stable the real mbp

I should get back to using hackintosh and stop torturing myself

sometimes linux plays 44100Hz music at 48000Hz and I cant figure out why, and it drives me mad

New hobby when I'm added to a group message on Instagram promoting some live can service or whatever. I thank them for adding me but state that the service isn't relevant to my interests, then offer them (and the other guests) the chance to visit my bandcamp before leaving.

My old ethnomusicology prof, who is an incredible sitarist, started a jazz/funk band a couple years ago

highly recommended if you're into snarky puppy -esque stuff



@luka jokes aside, I still don't really get FM. I mean, I do understand the principles, but I don't "feel" the sound, and get lost when it comes to programming patches

@luka that's actually what I'm usually doing in the evenings :) the only thing is, I'm currently soldering FM synth
